At WWE Payback, Austin Aries will have another opportunity to expel The King of the Cruiserweights from his throne when he challenges Neville for the WWE Cruiserweight Championship in a WrestleMania rematch.
Since his return at Roadblock: End of the Line and winning the WWE Cruiserweight Championship at Royal Rumble, Neville is undefeated in singles competition. The King of the Cruiserweights has vanquished all challengers and holds true the claim that without him, the Cruiserweight division would fall into obscurity.
However, one of Neville’s closest calls as titleholder came against Aries at The Ultimate Thrill Ride. Returning from injury and immediately setting his sights on Neville, A-Double soon earned the opportunity to challenge The King of the Cruiserweights. An intense battle nearly saw the fall of the king, but Neville resorted to attacking Aries’ surgically repaired orbital socket to walk off The Grandest Stage of Them All with the Cruiserweight Title still in his possession.
Refusing to accept defeat, Aries overcame Gentleman Jack Gallagher, Mustafa Ali and TJ Perkins in a high-stakes Fatal 4-Way Match on the first WWE 205 Live after WrestleMania, earning a second chance to dethrone The King of the Cruiserweights.
Will Neville resort to questionable tactics to defeat Aries again, or will A-Double persevere to claim the WWE Cruiserweight Championship?
Prediction: as much as I want to see Aries win the title, the WWE continue to prove to me that they don’t want Neville losing anytime soon, I maybe setting myself up for a loss here but I have to pick Neville to retain
